Mental health as a concept has cemented itself amongst the global society. From our neighbors to our closest friends and ourselves almost everyone has encountered bouts of stress, anxiety, and loneliness. We wanted to help educate people when it comes to mental health.
What it does
BetterKnow has a FAQ with 4 Categories to help answer most questions people would have, and it also provides quizzes to test people's knowledge about mental health.
How we built it
We used Xcode and Swift to create the user interface programmatically. We also used local data modeling for the FAQ,
Challenges we ran into
Having to learn about fundamental object oriented programming was a hurdle for half of the team, but getting passed that with some support and youtube videos we all got up to pace. Implementing a horizontal page viewer proved itself to be more complicated than we had bargained for as well, so we ended up scrapping the idea.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're happy with what we made, regardless if it's aesthetically incomplete and basic in functionality.
What we learned
We learned a fair bit about passing arrays into different viewcontrollers, setting up data models, and creating custom cells that have buttons in them.
What's next for BetterKnow
Just revamping the visuals, making it more user friendly, updating our resources, and uploading it to the App Store
